My November Purchases

Gosh, I am really feeling like I have a serious book buying problem. I shouldn't feel guilty about this, should I? I'll read them all eventually, won't I?? And I know I'm forgetting at least one other used book from Coffee Buy the Book, which I can't find. And I'm forgetting at least one or two more from Daedalus because I never would buy just ONE book at a time from them. And a third book from BOMC because it was buy 2, get 1 free. Hmmmm... O.k., well, here is a list of the books that I purchased and can currently find:

Rolling Stone Interviews - introduction by Jann Wenner (B&N)
